The Introduction of Zenfone from ASUS has been a revolutionary step for the company. With the Zenfone they have became a strong competitor in the ever expanding market of Smartphones. It is an Android based Smartphone which was introduced in 2014. The ASUS Zenfone is an android based device which was launched in the market with its inaugural version of Zenfone 4. Follow up models of Zenfone 5 and 6 have also been launched with additional features. In order to know more about the Zenfone 5 you should read ahead.

Popularity in Philippines

Filipinos are one of the major consumers of Zenfones. The ASUS Zenfone 5 is also expected to do large amount of business in this country and surrounding regions. Here it is the most popular Smartphone going above Samsung and Nokia.

New Related to Product release

The ASUS Zenfone 5 was released on a very wide scale and so far the company is very satisfied with sales for the first seven weeks. British electrical retail company Currys are they marketing partners of Zenfone in the UK. Sales have been also very high in India. Within hours of product launch, it went out of stock on all online stores. Fresh supplies were required to meet the market demand.


A 5 inch screen is difficult to come nowadays at what Asus is providing. It has a kind of curvy back made of plastic which also comes in various colours. The rear cover is made of plastic which has a soft appealing touch and can be easily removed. A little lip made of metal is present below the 5 inch screen and has an amazing look with shiny finish & design of concentric circles. ZenFone 5 has been designed in such a way that it can be easily operated with a single hand despite its relatively large size. Honestly saying, the large size designing is unable to hold everything together. However, a lot of ZenFone 5 specifications are yet to be released which are speculated to be sorted out in the near future.

Asus Zenfone 5 has a 5 inch large screen with IPS display showing in 720p resolution. Sharpness of screen is really good and lower screen resolution compliments it. A simple software naming Asus Splendid provides a screen customization utility. This makes easy handling and changing display and appearance functions easier. The ASUS Zenfone 5 comes with 1.6 GHz Dual core processor with Hyper-thread technology which is also being dubbed as Multi-core. It uses the Intel Atom Z2560 processor chip. Another option of a 2.0 GHz Z2580 chip is also available.


The success of a product basically depends on the plus points it has to offer in comparison to other similar type of products from other companies. This is a huge fact in terms of gadgets and technological devices. Here some advantages Asus Zenfone 5 provides its users- an excellent big and strong touch screen and has quite enough megapixels for camera in it considering its effective price.


Here is the part that every company is afraid of. Like a coin having both sides, a product also has a good side and a bad side. Bad side means disadvantages or lacking in features. Here are some drawbacks Asus Zenfone 5 comes with – Like many gadgets, it also has a problem with battery life and its camera is also not very great and has some flaws, screen is not slim making it little bulky.

Competitors in the Market

Right now the Android Market is always expanding. Therefore it is expected that Asus Zenfone 5 will face stern competition in the current market especially with Nokia, Samsung and Motorola very much into the android market. Two phones which would give very tough competition to Asus Zenfone 5 would be Motorola Moto G and Xiaomi MI-3, also Micromax Canvas series. Both Moto G and MI-3 comes in the same price range. Both Xiaomi and Moto G have a quad core processor which is much better than the dual core in Zenfone 5. But the 2048 MB RAM is an added advantage in this one.


Weighing out the pros and cons it can be surely said that the ASUS Zenfone 5 would be a good buy especially if you are looking for something economical.
